Strategic Investing in Telecommunications, Utilities From 30,000 Feet Up / Companies / US Utilities

By: Roger_Conrad

Earlier this week, I got a call from a reporter at a major newspaper, asking for my “view from 30,000 feet up” on the power industry. Big picture perspectives are most useful when they help us to see the forest as a whole, rather than just tree-by-tree. They're downright dangerous, however, when analysts fall in love with their prognostications.

Capitalizing on Global Growth from Emerging Markets / Companies / Emerging Markets

By: Michael_K_Dawson

The latest revelation on CNBC is that overseas growth can offset a slowing U.S. economy enabling the big U.S. multi-national companies to continue generating outstanding earnings. Talking head after talking head have parroted this theme for the last week and a half. Well, it is nice to be ahead of a trend for a change. Over the past three years, this has been the predominant theme of stocks in my portfolios. However, I haven't limited myself to U.S. companies.

Less than 25 New Companies to Mine Uranium by 2011 / Companies / Uranium

By: James_Finch

Nearly 500 companies are posing as 'uranium mining companies' worldwide. Hundreds of those publicly traded uranium companies will never mine a single pound of uranium. Along with the crash-and-burn of those companies, many investors could lose all or a large part of their speculative investment. How can one really find out which companies have an honest shot at becoming uranium miners?

Mexico lures junior miners; investors encouraged to take another look / Companies / Metals & Mining

By: Harold_Leishman

As a venture capital broker, active in the resource market, I look worldwide for the best opportunities for my risk tolerant clients. One country that keeps coming to my attention is Mexico . Junior resource companies grow and create shareholder value by discovering and developing mineral deposits, ideally ones rich enough to attract the attention of acquisition-minded senior producers. Some juniors aspire to become producers by reviving historic mines or partially developed projects with near-term production potential.

Many of these companies have found that Mexico is one of the best places in the world to pursue their goals. It offers many advantages — vast geological potential, a favorable investment climate, and an enduring mining tradition.

Profit from China's Railroad Expansion / Companies / China Stocks

By: Michael_K_Dawson

Many thought that Warren Buffet had lost his touch when he continued buying old boring companies in the late nineties when clearly technology stocks were the key to riches.  Today, how many wished that they had bought McDonald's instead of Microsoft in 1999? Last week, news surfaced that he was buying into another industry that doesn't have much appeal to modern investors.  The smirks have long since faded.  Now Buffet creates a buzz.

According to a filing with regulators, Warren Buffet's Berkshire Hathaway, Inc. had amassed a 10.9% stake, worth more than $3 billion, in railroad operator Burlington Northern Santa Fe Corp.  A Berkshire Hathaway spokeswoman also confirmed to Reuters that the company was investing nearly $1.4bn in two other unnamed railroad groups as well.  Once again Buffet is doing what no one does better – investing in long term growth opportunities.

EIA Summer Outlook: Good for Natural Gas Stocks? / Companies / Oil Companies

By: James_Finch

The surprise Northeaster blowing across the eastern United States may have confirmed the final bottom for hibernating natural gas and coalbed methane (CBM) company shares. The winter storm followed this past Tuesday's Energy Information Administration (EIA) Short-Term Energy & Summer Fuels Outlook.

The EIA forecast higher natural gas prices, this summer, while spot WTI crude oil prices are expected to decline. “On an annual basis, the Henry Hub spot price is expected to average about $7.83 per mcf in 2007, an 89-cent increase from the 2006 average, and $8.11 per mcf in 2008.” The EIA expects summer 2007 natural gas prices to rise by 17.7 percent over the past summer. For this year, natural gas prices would increase by 12.8 percent over 2006.

The statistical arm of the U.S. Department of Energy cited, “Concerns about extreme weather conditions and rising prices in the oil market will keep upward pressure on the Henry Hub spot price during much of the forecast period.” The report pointed out that “electric power demand for natural gas increases during the summer cooling season.”

Misguided worldview! Overlooked boom! Iron Ore / Companies / Metals & Mining

By: Money_and_Markets

Martin Weiss writes : Before he passed away, Dad and I often got away from the office, compared Big-Picture numbers of the global economy, and sometimes questioned the prevailing worldview.

Our conclusion: Probably since the Renaissance and certainly since the Industrial Revolution, the worldview of the West placed Europeans and their descendants at the top; Asia and its peoples near the bottom.

But in the real world, that image is upside down.

Just in terms of population, Asia dominates the globe — with an amazing 61% of all the people on the planet.

Global Warming Opportunities - Jumping onto the Bandwagon / Companies / Climate Change

By: Roger_Conrad

Not everyone is on board yet—or drinking the Kool-Aid, as some call it. The world's major scientific organizations, however, have now endorsed the concept that human-related carbon emissions are warming
the Earth's overall temperature.

They're joined by the estimated 80 percent-plus of the American public who call global warming a “serious problem.” And US politicians are scrambling to get on the bandwagon--and in plenty of time for November 2008 elections.

This week, Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) and former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich got together in Washington DC for what was supposed to be a serious debate on the issue. Instead, the event quickly turned into a contest about who was the toughest on global warming. In fact, observers noted—only partly tongue-in-cheek—that the two men appeared at one point to be on the brink of hugging each other.

Energy Corporate Earnings Season - Lowering the Bar / Companies / Oil Companies

By: Elliot_H_Gue

Corporate earnings reports for the first quarter are just starting to roll in; a slew of energy companies are scheduled to report earnings between now and the end of April. Earnings season is always an important time for stocks. Several times in the past two years comments from the bigger firms in the energy industry have revealed key emerging trends. 

But investors often interpret earnings reports and management commentary the wrong way. You can't analyze a company's results in a vacuum, nor can you simply compare results with analysts' expectations and decide whether a release is positive or negative for the stock.

Investing in China - Fat Profits from Asian Hotels / Companies / Chinese Stock Market

By: Money_and_Markets

Tony Sagami writes, I recently hit the big 5-0, and thanks to the persistent but gentle goading of my wife, I went to the doctor for a very thorough physical exam.

My physician said, "You're the healthiest fat guy I've ever seen, but unless you do something about your weight, I guarantee you'll start to fall apart in the not-too-distant future."

I didn't like the "fall apart" part of his lecture, so I decided to make some major changes in my life. I dramatically altered my diet … I've been working out six days a week … and since the start of the year, I've lost 15 pounds!

If I sound proud of myself, it's because I am. However, in a few weeks, I'll be jumping on a Cathay Pacific airplane and jetting back over to Asia. I know that maintaining this new lifestyle while traveling won't be easy, especially since I have plenty of corporate, government, and educational leaders to visit.

Uranium Stocks about to Gap Higher / Companies / Uranium

By: Elliot_H_Gue

Charles Steen was born in Caddo, Texas in 1919. He went on to study at John Tarleton Agricultural College in Stephenville and in 1940 transferred to the Texas College of Mines and Metallurgy at El Paso, receiving a bachelor's degree in geology in 1943. Ineligible for the draft because of his poor eyesight, Steen spent World War II working as a geologist in Bolivia and Peru. Returning to the US in 1945, he married and took a job doing field work for the Standard Oil Company of Indiana .

Down on his luck after losing his job, Steen read an article in the December 1949 issue of the Engineering and Mining Journal which discussed how the US federal government had issued incentives for prospectors to locate domestic supplies of uranium.

US Economic Growth and Corporate Earnings Growth Expectations / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Hans_Wagner

Investors who wish to beat the market should have a good understanding of the market's earnings expectations. The U.S. economy is slowing and the market has lower earnings expectations for 2007. This will limit the expectations for potential growth in the stock market as investors take a more cautious near-term view. However, global growth in the emerging and BRIC countries should help global companies grow their earnings helping to offset the impact of lower earnings in the U.S.

Many of the large U.S. based companies derive more than 50% of their revenues and earnings from outside the U.S. This could set the stage for a change in the current bull market trend. Joe Ellis has written an excellent book on how to predict macro moves in the market called Ahead of the Curve: A Commonsense Guide to Forecasting Business and Market Cycles .

US Utilities 'Stealth' Nuclear Power Revival to result in more Demand for Uranium / Companies / Uranium

By: James_Finch

While the big talk is about nuclear reactors being built in China, India, Russia and elsewhere, U.S. utilities are enjoying a ‘stealth’ nuclear renaissance of their own. Since the NRC ‘power uprate’ program began, utilities may add the equivalent of up to seven new reactors by 2011.

The news media love headlines, especially those which mention that no nuclear reactor has come online in more than a decade. How would journalists (and environmentalists) react if they discovered U.S. nuclear utilities have added the ‘nuclear power’ equivalent to four large reactors? A fifth or more could be on the way.

Will the Vacation Industry be a Victim of Sub-prime and ARM Problems? / Companies / US Housing

By: Marty_Chenard

Where and How will the sub-prime/ARM problems hurt other parts of the economy?

Who will get hurt first?

You are probably tired of hearing about the sub-prime problem by now. There is another aspect about sub-prime problems that the no one is talking about that has underlying implications regarding delinquent debts problems .

Larry Jeddoloh, of TIS Group, made a good observation about consumers caught in debt problems relative to their mortgage payments and losing their homes. He said that, " ... when a consumer is in deep debt, they always try to save their homes first. They will let their credit card payments go, stop payments on their car, and default on loans from a relative before they lose their house." What about those who are not in deep debt yet?
